How much does a Virginia state lottery bond cost?

The Commonwealth of Virginia requires lottery retailers to post surety bonds between $20,000 and $40,000, which can cost as little as 1% of the bond amount with premiums starting at $200. These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the price an applicant pays for their lottery bond will be based on a credit review by an underwriter.

Why do I need a Virginia lottery bond?

Virginia lottery bonds ensure principals (lottery retailers) pay all sums due to the state for lottery tickets/proceeds and comply with all statutes, rules, and regulations pertaining to the license.

If the principal violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and the state or an individual is harmed as a result, the surety will cover damages up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
